The Hold N Treat is exactly as it sounds a system designed to hold the waste in a 15 gallon tank and then when in an area where treatment is allowed the user can choose to treat what is in the tank. Another option is to only treat the tank each time it reaches the full level. The flexibility of this system allows the user to either hold only or hold and then treat toilet waste.
The system is designed to either have an Electroscan or a Purasan mounted on the end of the tank and is pre-plumbed and pre-wired for simple installation. An integral macerator pump moves the waste from the tank into the Type I Marine Sanitation Device (MSD) that you choose. The tank is also equipped with a connection that allows the user to have the tank pumped out if traveling for an extended period in a No Discharge Zone.
While this system is designed as a complete drop in place system there are other options available depending on your existing configuration. Raritan has designed each of our Type I MSD’s to include the ability to “build your own” Hold N Treat system. If you already have an existing holding tank then you can purchase components necessary to turn your existing holding tank into a Hold N Treat System.
Responsible handling of waste on board is a key to preserving the environment and waters we all boat in. A full holding tank should never be discharged overboard, adding the ability to treat the waste if a pumpout is not available allows the best most environmentally friendly solution.
